a relict of old times

Our beloved-behated elevator including the elevator woman (dian ti ayi) will shortly be gone.

A relict of old times will vanish.

A new lift is on the way. And the crazy chatty dian ti ayi's voice won't be heard in the gallery anymore.

M 50 joint opening tomorrow

Tomorrow, Shanghai art week kicks of with its legendary M50 compound joint opening uniting visiting crowds and galleries.

My partner gallery EASTLINK has a show on view, see details below. Me - for myself leave behind the white cube walls and move to the french concession to another legendary space - YY's - for 4 days during fair time - SH contemporary is opening doors tomorrow with preview, vernissage and a fancy party on Bund 3.

So if you are not dizzy after to much of much come and see the late night show at YY's.















Dear Friends of Eastlink Gallery,

We cordially invite you to the opening of Shadow Painting-Works on paper by YU Aijun. 

Shadow Paining-Works on paper by Yu Aijun


Opening: Wednesday 5 September, 17:00-19:00, 2012


Duration: September 5-16, 2012

Eastlink Gallery is pleased to present Shadow Painting-Works on paper by Yu Aijun. One distinct character of Yu’s works is that they create a sense of distance, shadowed yet very powerful. The artist treats small details in a way as if they embody great significance. Yu’s works on paper breathe the air of confidence and calmness, which can be easily received by the audience. By adapting the uncertainty the rubbing technique creates, Yu explores the treasure mine of paper paintings, extracts and formulates an expressive method of his own character.


This exhibition will showcase Yu Aijun’s most recent works on paper, show lasts until September 16.


Yu Aijun, born 1971, in Liaoning province, China, now works and lives in Shenyang.

no smoking in M50 (M50园区禁止吸烟)

no smoking in M50 - are you kidding me? I am a non-smoker (quit 6 years ago) but this sign must fall under the category "absurdities around town" since I see no way that this will ever work.

Don't get it? Artists NEED cigarettes (or at least they think they do!)


M50园区禁止吸烟 - 你是在跟我开玩笑吗?我是一个非吸烟者 (六年前戒的烟),但这个招牌根本就荒谬极了,因为我并不认为它会产生多大的作用。

不理解吗?艺术家需要香烟 (至少他们是这样认为的!)
